And I thought this was a rare edition.
Looks like not many are interested.
I get only like 8 people putting the item in the watch list..

sigh, dissapointing..

I'm trying to work out funds to buy a nice birthday present for my girlfriend. Help me spread the word around guys.
So that I can get a decent value for this item.

Thanks!

Here is the thread from the seller on x3dfx
http://p197.ezboard.com/fx3dfxfrm1.showMessage?topicID=17910.topic

It's a normal card with a MAC bios but it can be flashed for the PC again. IMO, the price is way too high. There have been other PCI Voodoo5's on Ebay recently for less than half that price. I'm betting the price is so high because someone wants it for the collectors value of the box.

Already expensive since drivers and cables are missing and the box doesn't seem to be in perfect state

There were so many people willing to pay alot.
Seems to have turned around for my case.

Oh well.

It was actually in GBP( after conversion is over $200 plus shipping to the US),
I was competing virtually with Germans towards the end i think.

He offered me higher of 120 dollars without shipping. But I didn't take it up.
I guess I should have find out about the market value before deciding sigh

yeah I guess I was overly exited when I saw this card on ebay. It was so rare and I was looking for the Pink 4500 Mac initially, but manage to purchase the 5500 Mac instead.
Well, either way , auction over now.

And do let me know any updated on the Pink Box latest by say february next year.
As after I am done with my studies, I am going home to Malaysia.

No problem.
Sometimes strange things can happen.
And come back here, if you want/like or can.
